LARP: Return of the Dragon

Join us October 26th at Heroic Halloween for a day of gaming leading up to the LARP EVENT Return of the Dragon!

Two cycles ago the world was wracked by the barbarian hoard of Duke Drachen. Were it not for the heroics of several intrepid adventurers and the great Tanaka the Dragon Slayer, the kingdom would have fallen.
Last year the congregation of Pastor Wilcoxen summoned the Godsend star to collide with the world. They were convinced that the only way to salvation was mass extinction. Wilcoxen was unsuccessful in destroying the world with the Godsend star.
Now they are back and have the body of Drachen. Their goal, bring the Dragon back to life and use him to burn the Kingdom of Praelia bring about Armageddon once and for all.

From the Bardic Academy

            Good day students, welcome to the academy.  I am your instructor, conductor and preceptor.  Gather round the table and listen to my tale, make merry whilst you can for this is the last of the ale.   For you anyway that is to say.  For now that is to be.   The studies you will undergo here are of the greatest importance.  You are the ones who have the most gravitas duties in the entire land.  For it is the jesters, the musicians, the poets, playwrights, actors and orators who bear that burden, to tell the story of us all.  Yes there are chroniclers and librarians, those who would call themselves historians.  You may even be among their membership as well.  But where the Guild of Chroniclers may record facts, know lists and histories within their tomes, we record the story of the land.  It is for us to note the why, not simply the who, where and what of the events.   This very same dichotomy traces up to our government wherein we have a Chancellor of Registries that is of the Chronicler’s Guild and our own Chancellor of Histories that is out of our own Bardic Academy.   Two similar fields, but vastly different in the end result.

Stinson School of Polettiques

            In Stinson, the School of Polettiques teaches bards the art of persuasive speaking designed to elevate one’s subject (often themselves) to a level of greater success and status.  Through proper use of the skills taught in this school, a bard can become a well-paid and highly sought part of a politician, noble or faction’s retinue.  The ultimate goal of the politique is to put their faction, order, county or even principality above all others in the eyes of the populace.  A seasoned product of the school can sway the hearts and minds of even the most stalwart opponents with a rousing speech.

            Headmaster Lesane Crooks teaches the master classes in personal growth for lords, barons, princes and other heads of state.  His lessons are often ruthless, but speak of knowing when to build up and when to lessen the other nobles in the region, how to build defenses and how to gauge the defenses of others.   He warns against flattery, speaking that the way to protect against flattery is to make others understand that telling the truth will not offend.  On the subject of rule, he tells that it is safer to be feared than loved, because love is an obligation – subject to the baseness of man yet fear is preserved by the dread of punishment, which never fails.

It's not all dank in the swamps.

         In the western regions of the Kaylinn Swamps, north of Welch Gulch and south of the Analova River lies the small marshy community of Soggy Bottom.  A community of peasants, governed loosely by the House of Chapman, Soggy Bottom is just one of the many settlements across the land.  Notable, however, is the music of the area.  The bards of the land play a style of folk music that blends the lyrical sensibilities of the people of Soggy Bottom with the stories of the adventures both real and imagined of Soggy Bottom’s heroes.

Sulphurdale Suffers!

Hundreds of citizens are now without a home after the Blue Star fell from the sky to slam into the Ruby Sea. Tremors from the earth were felt as far north as Wulpert. Great waves and storms followed the impact, laying waste to the surround islands.

Sulphurdale was hit especially hard, with flooding waters reaching 12 feet higher than usual. The storms continue to batter all along the northern coast of the Ruby Sea.

Skies darkened by storms, but the blue hue has gone. Mercenaries and opportunistic adventurers are rushing to dare the stormy seas in hopes to discover if the rumors of a new island made from the fallen star are true. The ores within could be priceless.

Reports on recent flattened landscape in Tor

Analovan spies ushered out this missive discussing a strange event in the Tunguska region of Southern Tor, between Kroninburg and the Hampton Roads. Apparently a huge swathe of the forest was flattened by an unknown force. The missive follows as below.

We had a hut by the Tunguska river with my brother Cheborneck. We were sleeping. Suddenly we both woke up at the same time. Somebody shoved us. We heard whistling and felt strong wind. Cheborneck said, 'Can you hear all those birds flying overhead?' We were both in the hut, couldn't see what was going on outside. Suddenly, I got shoved again, this time so hard I fell into the fire. I got scared. Cheborneck got scared too. We started crying out for father, mother, brother, but no one answered. There was noise beyond the hut, we could hear trees falling down. Cheborneck and I got out of our sleeping bags and wanted to run out, but then the thunder struck. This was the first thunder. The Earth began to move and rock, the wind hit our hut and knocked it over. My body was pushed down by sticks, but my head was in the clear. Then I saw a wonder: trees were falling, the branches werbe on fire, it became mighty bright, how can I say this, as if there was a second sun, my eyes were hurting, I even closed them. It was like what the Valerians call lightning. And immediately there was a loud thunderclap. This was the second thunder. The morning was sunny, there were no clouds, our Sun was shining brightly as usual, and suddenly there came a second one!

Cheborneck and I had some difficulty getting out from under the remains of our hut. Then we saw that above, but in a different place, there was another flash, and loud thunder came. This was the third thunder strike. Wind came again, knocked us off our feet, struck the fallen trees.

We looked at the fallen trees, watched the tree tops get snapped off, watched the fires. Suddenly Cheborneck yelled "Look up" and pointed with his hand. I looked there and saw another flash, and it made another thunder. But the noise was less than before. This was the fourth strike, like normal thunder.

Now I remember well there was also one more thunder strike, but it was small, and somewhere far away, where the Sun goes to sleep.

Travel Ban to Tor

Citizens are hereby warned not to travel north of Nearneth Point in the West as Tor effectively has closed its borders to the Kingdom’s Southern Provinces.  Citing the proclamation of His Grace Duke Kalivantes, Duke Dagorian declared:

“Neither the Capitol, nor the four other Principalities, have offered any aid to Tor in the reclamation of the Falkenburg Peninsula.  Now we are under assault by raiders on the sea as well, but we expect no aid from the Southern lands.  We are as we have so often been, on our own.  And so until this war is settled, our Vanguard will stand guard on our borders. None shall enter Tor, none shall leave. We mean no aggression to our brothers in the South, and hope to see an end to our internal issues quickly. Then, we shall restore trade and travel privileges with Tor.”

The Toran Vanguard patrol the border cities. The Assassins Gambit has been hired to repel and restrain, keeping those on either side of line in their place.
